    Because any mathematical alphanumberic character can appear superscripted
    in mathematics; does that mean that we need to create superscripted characters
    for all of them? If these are part of a small, closed set, like U+02B0, then
    it's appropriate to encode them; but if just any character can appear
    superscripted or subscripted, then it goes outside Unicode, and needs to be
    dealt with in markup.
